I commented that the custom keywords issue had not been fully thought out,
and that in resolving it, we might possibly want to extend our svn:keywords
syntax. Thus, I propose that we cannot start auto-munging keywords
properties until we've designed any addition to the syntax (or decided that
we do not need an addition).
